From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Returning to Lisbon at the turn of the twentieth century after having made his fortune in Brazil, João Antonio Santos shocked the locals by building an opulent Brazilian Art Nouveau mansion with elaborate stained-glass windows on the edge of the ancient Alfama quarter. It slowly fell from grace over the course of a century, finally becoming the offices of import/export companies, until a history-loving Spaniard and his Portuguese partner bought it and restored it with lavish amounts of both cash and tender loving care. They opened three beautiful, individually decorated suites as a micro hotel within the mansion last summer, and it instantly became a favorite insider's address with an aesthetically discerning group ranging from Spanish filmmakers to German fashion designers. You'll feel as though you've arrived at a private mansion, with incense in the air, the ministrations of a soft-spoken Brazilian butler and housekeeper, and the warm welcome of Rui Teixeira, the partner who runs the property. The magnificent ground-floor public rooms are decorated with elaborate moldings and antiques, as are the suites, all of which have mesmerizing views of the Tagus River. The only drawback to this unique hotel is that it's so delightful you'll have to force yourself out the door to see the city. —2010 Hot List

Which room to book: If you want a terrace, reserve the Suite Amaya.
